Cybera’s Rapid Access Cloud, an award-winning program, provides free cloud computing resources to Alberta-based academics, researchers, non-profits and small to medium sized organizations that are not covered by the national DAIR program.
It is intended to:
- Help researchers utilize cloud computing environments for testing, analysis and experimentation
- Providing a competitive advantage by offering a staging ground to test their ideas for cloud-based services, before moving to a commercial cloud platform
- Provide a learning environment for people to explore the possibilities and benefits of cloud computing
